8vo. Publisher's blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt; in the original illustrated dust-wrapper (not price-clipped); pp. [x], 273; slight sunning to top edge of spine on cloth; light rubbing to edges and extremities of wrapper, with discolouration to spine, and light spotting to boards; light even toning to paper-stock, with a little spotting to edges and endpapers; a very good copy.
First edition. 'The two linked novels in this book, never before published, were written in the middle 1920's, when as a young man [Shute] was working in the aircraft industry. Flying is the theme of both and they reveal at once that golden seam of narrative genuis which was to make Shute the top-selling novelist of our times' (front flap).
